  • A former customer of Heritage Bank, who earlier threatened to drag them to court, has revisited the incident
  • The ex-customer, who is a lawyer, recalled how Heritage Bank declined to allow him to move his money to another account and shared what happened afterwards
  • On June 3, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) announced the revocation of Heritage Bank’s licence with immediate effect

A Nigerian lawyer, Ekezie Speed Onumajulu, has reacted to the liquidation of Heritage Bank, his former bank.

Citing the financial institution’s inability to improve its financial performance, the CBN revoked Heritage Bank’s license on June 3.

Ekezie said he had threatened to take Heritage Bank to court for refusing to allow him to move all his money domiciled with them to his Fidelity Bank account.

He said they eventually complied and would have their license revoked months later. Ekezie wrote on Facebook:

“One thing I enjoy about being a lawyer is that I never have to pay for legal services. I do it myself. Earlier this year I threatened to sue Heritage bank when they declined to allow me transfer all my money domiciled in their bank into my Fidelity bank account. They had to comply with the dictates of my demand. A few months later, the bank is history.”

In the comment section, Ekezie revealed al his money was with Heritage Bank then.

“I practically had all my savings in that account at the time.”
